WARNING: If you’re a parent of a school-aged child, this article is going to sting a little…but the truth is never pain-free.
If you take what you’re about to read personally, then I have news for you: you’re a part of the problem, and that means you’re the EXACT person that should be listening to what this article is about to tell you.
However, before we get into it, we’ll start it with a question:
Have you noticed how bad kids are nowadays?
Many of them are absolute messes…
They can’t really read well, write well or cope with the pressures of everyday life – the first thing they do at the slightest sign of adversity is breakdown and/or shutdown – and move forward like there’s not even a problem to solve.
It’s like they expect somebody else to always take care of their problems.
As an elementary school-aged child – this makes sense – but parents should still be trying to institute some self-reliance by the time the child is old enough to read and write.
However, we see these same traits in middle school and high school-aged children as well – and some of those characteristics even follow them to the college level.
It’s not their fault, though, it’s the fault of their parents – as there seems to be a HUGE disconnect when it comes to knowing when and when not to get involved in your kid’s life.
Parents Aren’t As Involved As They Used To Be
Most parents BARELY raise their kids these days…
They hand them a phone or a tablet – and allow the digital universe to be the village that helps shape the mind of their children – and that’s had disastrous consequences all around.
And this issue with child rearing was evident during the lockdowns on 2020 – when parents were FORCED to interact with their kids – and they got to see first-hand the little monsters they were starting to create.
If this sounds like you and your kids – this is your wake-up call…
Stay involved in your kids lives.
For the first time in YEARS, we’re seeing parents taking a HUGE interest in their children’s education – as they’re seeing what unbridled socialist indoctrination does first hand.
We see parents standing up to mask mandates for their kids who are now forced to wear masks – even though kids BARELY get sick with COVID-19…
And parents around the country are standing up.
We’ll probably see an even HIGHER level of involvement in California when Governor Newsom’s vaccine mandate goes into effect for K-12.
But there’s another issue that parents have been fighting over the past year – and it’s not medical – but sort of IS connected to the pandemic…
And that’s Critical Race Theory—or as most of us have come to know it, CRT.
An Issue That Is UNITING Parents: CRT
Many parents of ALL colors are pushing back against CRT education – because in truth – it’s not a FACT. It’s a theory that is unproven – and can never be proven – but would be VERY divisive as it pits one group of children as “victims” and the others as “oppressors”.
Well, parents aren’t having it – and are showing up in DROVES to school board meetings to let their displeasure be heard and to make their cases as to why this controversial theory shouldn’t be taught in schools.
Now, unfortunately, these meetings have gotten a little heated – and there have been some cross words and even some blows have been thrown at some of them…
But it’s not something that the federal government needs to get involved with, is it?
Apparently, yes, it is…
As there are some groups that are whining about the treatment they’re receiving – and have asked the Biden administration to do something about it.
Just days after a national organization of school board officials whined to Biden about “hate groups” intimidating education officials…
Attorney General Merrick Garland has aimed the FBI at parents in order to stifle “threats of violence” against administrators.
Go Cry To Sleepy Joe About It
Are you serious?
You’re saying that just because parents are against the teaching of CRT – this puts them in a “hate group” category? Because the fact is – there are many parents of Black and Brown students that feel that CRT is wrong as well.
Apparently, all you have to do is cry “racist” wolf these days – and big daddy Joe will come to your rescue.
So, without citing ONE specific case, Merrick Garland released a memorandum on the issue that expressed concern about a “disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff who participate in the vital work of running our nation’s public schools.”
Ummmm, last I checked, Mer – Americans have freedom of speech – and just because the parents aren’t happy and are exercising their 1st Amendment right to protest…
Doesn’t mean that they’re going to use violence.
Garland continued, “While spirited debate about policy matters is protected under our Constitution, that protection does not extend to threats of violence or efforts to intimidate individuals based on their views.”
Here’s the question…
How do you KNOW there are “threats of violence”? You’re taking the word of one group over another…
This isn’t something the federal government needs to get involved in – it’s a waste of resources.
You know what you do?
This “national organization of school officials” needs to quit whining – and start LISTENING.
They want to stop the protests?
Easy… listen to these parents and honestly reflect on the idea that CRT is NOT something that should be mentally ingested by our kids.
It was a college-aged course for a reason…
Forcing it on school-aged children doesn’t make sense – and will only lead to more division in our country.
However, this is the Biden administration – so this will probably be put on the fast track – as they’re apt to focus on the little things rather than the big problems that are actually facing our country.
This is how we operate in 2021…
Guess we’ve got to get used to it.
“It is bad psychology to tell people who do not believe that they are racist—who may even actively despise racism—that there is nothing they can do to stop themselves from being racist—and then ask them to help you. It is even less helpful to tell them that even their own good intentions are proof of their latent racism. Worst of all is to set up double-binds, like telling them that if they notice race it is because they are racist, but if they don’t notice race it’s because their privilege affords them the luxury of not noticing race, which is racist.” ― Helen Pluckrose
